I have 37 apps stuck on "pending" for about two weeks and they haven't progressed. I've tried various troubleshooting methods, but nothing has worked. I also can't download any new apps; they either say "download pending" or start downloading and get stuck indefinitely.
i already tried:clearing the Microsoft Store cache using the command prompt and resetting the Microsoft Store through settings
Thank you!

Have you tried resetting the update components?
Open cmd prompt/Powershell/Terminal with admin & enter:
Code:
Net Stop bits
Net Stop wuauserv
Net Stop appidsvc
Net Stop cryptsvc
Ren %Systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore DataStore.bak
Ren %Systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\Download Download.bak
Ren %Systemroot%\System32\catroot2 catroot2.bak
Del "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Downloader\qmgr*.dat"
Net Start bits
Net Start wuauserv
Net Start appidsvc
Net Start cryptsvc
Restart the PC & try updating again.

And/or:
Search for services.msc & find Windows Update & ensure it is set to Automatic.
